South Head

Lonely Planet review

At the northern end of Camp Cove, the South Head Heritage Trail kicks off, leading into a section of Sydney Harbour National Park. It passes old battlements and a path heading down to Lady Bay, before continuing on to the candy-striped Hornby Lighthouse and the sandstone Lightkeepers’ Cottages (1858) on South Head itself.

The harbour views and crashing surf on the ocean side make this a very dramatic and beautiful spot indeed.
